Of course, I don't think Rich has ever claimed that the Dead were really singing about hockey and therefore you should convert to hockey-ism.

And if you were posting a long link about Stalingrad that related it to the "plant ice/harvest wind" line in Franklin's -- not just humorously or as an offhand comment, but as an actual serious effort to link the two -- and did something similar about Stalingrad on a regular basis as if it was your personal mission to convert people to your Stalingrad viewpoint by showing how your own view of Stalingrad linked with the Dead's entire oeuvre ... well, I don't think it would go over real well.

That's pretty brilliant.

The above tune even has a GD link. "Early in March Garcia had volunteered as a lighting technician for a production of Damn Yankees at Palo Alto's Commedia Dell'art Theater, and was introduced to a young man named Robert Hunter." (McNally, p. 26)

McNally implies it was '61.

So we can thank a musical about baseball for the GD. Incidentally, this song was sung by a woman who is, in the play, literally a friend of the devil :-)

The general had a good insight:

"The world has achieved brilliance without wisdom, power without conscience. Ours is a world of nuclear giants and ethical infants. We know more about war than we know about peace, more about killing than we know about living." - Omar Bradley

My dad worked with him during the war. (the good war, not the great war!)

But now that we're on a Roger thread, here he explains our plight:

Those were men and women of good stock.
We don't know what serious hard times in our generations thanks to the sacrifices made by our elders. (and I would add by the Grace of GOD)

One of my favorites!

Also religion sucks because it organizes some and excludes others under the banner of human righteousness.
"They say, 'LOVE YOUR BROTHER'
but you catch it, when you try"-Unbroken
The Bible says, "Be Righteous, For I AM RIGHTEOUS"
To me that is the horns of the human dilemma!
